Often confusion appears when we are facing choices in our lives. Choices are easy when both options are no-harm. But problems will definitely greet us when one of the choices is painful and hurtful, yet is the right one.
Question: How do I know which one is the right one?
Albert Einstein once said “if your heads tells you one thing and your heart tells you another, before you do anything, decide first whether you have ‘a better head’ or ‘a better heart’”.
But then I have an idea… Why has only better one of those if I could have both?
God, the Master and our Creator must know us best than anybody. He knows what kinds of sin we could do. So, He equipped us just more than enough to be like He wants us to be.
“In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit” Eph 1:13 (ESV)
When we believe in Him, He seals us with the Holy Spirit. Spirit of truth, spirit of righteousness, and spirit of kindness. When we invite Jesus to our lives and ask Him to stay there forever, the Holy Spirit will be inside of us.
“God has called us to live holy lives, not impure lives.” 1 Thes 4:7 (NLT)
The Holy Spirit that we received by the grace of God will guide us to live holy. It enables us to recognize the right choice we should take for all options exist. The choice we make through questioning and look for the answer in His words.
So, instead of choosing only to use one of them…
I have made covenant with my heart and my head that I will use them in a right terms and conditions I acknowledged with the strength of the Holy Spirit.
Head will need to step in when heart starts holding on to something wrongly hurtful.
Heart will need to step in when head keeps telling justifications that add hatred.
The main purpose of their existence is to please God. No other reasons.
Heart and head will have to have a great teamwork and communication to help us becoming the person God has always wanted us to be.
